I am in the process of applying for a PhD at the univerity where I am currently completing my undergraduate.
The application has a section for awards. I don't have anything to show for my time as a undergraduate (my university doesn't really acknowledge achievements in coursework).
I have several awards from my tertairy entrance exams/subjects completed in highschool. Such as:
- Award from my current univerity for being the highest ranking disabled applicant for undergraduate.
- Award for being one of the highest scoring in my state for a particular tertiary entrance subjects
- Several awards from my highschool for topping the school in particular tertiary entrances subjects
Are achievements/awards gained as a result of actions I undertook in highschool relevant to my application now?
I'm not talking about things like merit certificates in lower years of highschool (Its not impressive to piles of those), just things relating to my tertiary entrance exams/subjects, particularly the first two which are awarded by the university and the state, for achievement in final year of highschool.
